In short, the E-WORTH study showed that participants who received the E-WORTH intervention, compared to the treatment-as-usual control group, had higher odds of awareness and willingness to use PrEP. Overall, the findings demonstrate the importance of culturally-tailored interventions for Black women in the US to reduce existing gaps in PrEP uptake.
